Pause, promise and hook

As a speaker, you are continuously forced to fight two powerful demons of distraction: smart phones and inner voices. Your audience seems to listen to you, but are they really 100% attentive? One of your big goals in public speaking is to keep the level of attention at 100% at all times. Compared to that task the punishment of Sisyphus feels like a day at the spa. According to Merriam-Webster, curiosity is the desire to know. When I desire to know something from you, you have my full attention. Drive their curiosity and they will listen to every single word.
